Ground Improvement

Engineered Foundation Technologies provides specialty grouting services for ground improvement.  We perform several grouting processes that can structurally improve the physical characteristics of a soil matrix.   This technology is ideal for existing structures built over poor soils.

Injection grouting for ground improvement work is traditionally categorized as either “permeation” or “compaction” grouting.  For Compaction grouting, a higher viscosity material is injected at high pressure, physically displacing and ultimately compacting the soils.For Permeation grouting, a low viscosity material is injected into the soil with the intention of the “permeating” the ground.  Once in the presence of water, the material will expand and cure in place.

Expanding polymer grouts will perform a combination of both compaction grouting and permeation grouting, depending on the soil porosity.
